Michael Jordan said, “Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence championships.” His powerful words are a gentle reminder to great leaders of the importance of teamwork in achieving success. It is about maximizing, with and through others, our unique and beautiful gifts in a sharing of our collective strengths. This joyous diversity of perspectives, ideas and insights add depth and richness to communal thought. What to one is self-evident may be to another a life-changing discernment.
Ken Blanchard said, “None of us is as smart as all of us.” Our journey is a magnificent mosaic of collaborations and partnerships of helping and serving each other to find and achieve our greatest potential. It is one of mutual growth, learning and exploration beyond our own worldviews. It is pushing our boundaries and being vulnerable to open our eyes to new possibilities as we see through the eyes of others.
“Coming together is a beginning, staying together is progress, and working together is success.” wrote Henry Ford. May you play many games on many teams and win magnificent championships throughout your life’s journey holding closely the words of Gloria Arroyo, “The power of one, if fearless and focused, is formidable, but the power of many working together is better.”
Have a beautiful day and a magnificent week!!!
